The Third Step tells the story of Frankie who is an alcoholic and a drug addict. The story revolves around how Frankie deals with his demons while having a difficulty comprehending the existence of God. It carefully tells the tales of how a simple man can be involved with crimes against humanity. This book candidly shows how a man can be both loving and remorseless at the same time. This book narrates Frankie's struggle to find a God that he can surrender himself to, the one he can fully accept and let into his life.
I liked reading this book because of the unpredictability of what Frankie will be doing next. I loved how real the character of Frankie is. He is a tough guy with a soft heart. Although he may be remorseless in so many instances, he is still soft and kind when it comes to the people that matter most to him.
I agree with the way God was portrayed in this story. You certainly can't force your God to another man and claim that it is the only way to soul redemption. We all need a God that we find acceptable, that we can personally relate to rather than a God that is being forced to us by any religion.
The thing that I didn't like about this book was the way the story was narrated in a point of view of Frankie's friend. I find it weird that a friend of Frankie will know exactly how he felt like. It is okay to narrate the story in a second person's point of view but not as Frankie's friend. I liked it better when it was told from Frankie's point of view, it seems more effective and relatable.
I rate this book 3 out of 4 stars. Overall, I liked the story but I think it would be better if it was effectively written from a different person's point of view. I enjoyed reading this story and I loved the ending. It was satisfying. I would recommend this book to people who are fond of reading dark-themed books that deal with the realities of our society.
